Just because the weather is starting to turn doesn’t mean you should stop your backyard entertaining! Regardless of the weather, you’ll be able to host a party to remember by incorporating a few of these ideas.
When you’re setting up your backyard, think through how you want to entertain before you purchase any furniture. Get a table large enough to fit everyone you regularly entertain and make sure there is a designated seating area. You may also want to bring in a rug to warm things up.

If you don’t have the perfect setup, don’t worry! You can still have a great party. Add mood lighting by stringing lights in your yard. Using bistro lights will give your yard a mature look.
Get a portable speaker so you can have music outside. Create a playlist before the party so that you can create the exact tone you want. Music will cover up any awkward silences and help everyone feel immediately more comfortable.

Even though you’re outside, don’t forget that your guests might end up in your house as well. Don’t stress about seriously cleaning your house, but make sure your bathroom is clean. The chances of someone needing to use it are pretty high and you don’t want dirty towels on the floor be the last thing your guest sees before they go home.
Regardless of the time of year, entertaining in your backyard is a fun way to have friends and family come over. How do you do backyard entertaining?
